Join our Sommelier and GM Tim Rawding for a Marsh House Bar takeover!
“Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles!”
This week featuring: António Maçanita Isabella a Proibida, Azores 2015
Azores is a group of islands 1,000 miles off the coast of Portugal that resemble the volcanic islands of Hawaii or Santorini more so than a winemaking region. On the specific island of Pico, António Maçanita has harvested the lone red grape of Isabella. it’s nose is a bouquet of passionfruit, potpourri, concord grape juice and cherry jolly ranchers that sets quite the precedent before tasting. On the palate there is a vibrant lift which one would expect, but a gritty tannic bite afterwards that would latch nicely onto some fatty piece of meat. My meat of choice would be duck.
